The Special Victims Unit, a specially trained squad of detectives in the NYPD, investigate sexually related crimes.
Many cast members from The Wire (2002) appeared on this show.
ADA Casey Novak:
Is that the best you can come up with?
The same detectives are seen dealing with both victim and suspect, this would never happen in real life for the fear of forensic cross contamination (forensic material being transferred from one to another via the hands and clothing of a third party).
From the second episode of the second season (2000-2001), the opening credits break the pattern followed by the earlier episodes of SVU, the original Law & Order, and Criminal Intent. Instead of the credits ending with a shot of the cast walking towards the camera, they instead are shown sitting around a desk.
